Vivian is a Damage Champion in Paladins, added on November 15th, 2017.

Lore[]

Rapidly rising through the ranks of the Magistrate, Vivian's clever, persistent scheming got her appointed to the Deepwerks facility, where she was the first to recognize the military potential of the research they were conducting.

In the swirling chaos of the war with the Resistance, she sees only the opportunity to advance her station in life. Equipped with some of the most advanced crystal-powered weaponry ever created, she joins the battle not to prove herself or to follow orders, but to find and silence the lone witness of her true plans.

Summary[]

Vivian is a damage champion who can deal Sustained Damage with her Light Machine Gun up to medium range. She has the ability to protect her front upper body with her Deflector Shield. In addition she can throw out a deployable sensor that reveals enemies to her team in a large radius. By activating the ultimate she summons two Sentinel Drones that fire energy blasts while she shoot her Light Machine Gun and deals Burst Damage. Her weak point is her lack of Movement Abilities.

    • Despite this, as revealed here, Vivian still works for the Magistrate, in Deepwerks specifically.
    • She was originally going to mock Corvus for being kicked out, but it was later decided to have her join him due to seeing use in Corvus, as revealed here. As also stated there, Vivian probably doesn't like Corvus, while he probably doesn't trust her.
  • Based on a dev statement revealing Viktor to be around 5'9 or 175cm tall, and comparing it to model sizes in-game and out of game, it was discovered that Vivian would be around 5'4 or 163cm tall.

  • Viktor (old design), Tyra, and Buck also appear in Vivian's teaser trailer.

  • At one point,[1] a concept for a redesigned Vivian was explored, but ultimately never materialized in-game.

  • Vivian is one of the only champions to ever speak with their mouth visibly moving, as shown here and here. She shares this trait with Ash, Azaan, Imani, Rei, Saati, Talus, Tiberius, Octavia, and Vora.
    • She's also the only champion to ever speak in this manner more than once.
  • As revealed here, Tencent, the company behind the defunct Chinese version of Paladins, were largely responsible for the creation of Vivian.
  • Vivian's codename was "Churchill", as revealed here.
  • The main crystal in Vivian's weapon will grow dimmer as ammo is used up.
  • The crystal on the back of Vivian's weapon will glow red when an enemy is being detected by a Sensor Drone.
  • In older versions of Paladins, there used to be a number of additional recolors of default champions. For Vivian, these recolors included the Deciever skin.

  • Vivian manipulator small.pngManipulator
  • A manipulator is one who controls or influences others in a clever or unscrupulous way.


  • Vivian silvertongue small.pngSilvertongue

  • Vivian fullthrottle small.pngFull Throttle


  • Vivian daywalker small.pngVivian contessa small.pngDay Walker / Contessa
  • Despite being a vampire, these skins are also apparently vampire hunters as well, as mentioned here.
  • The blood vial in this these skins' weapons will drain as ammo is used up.
  • The line "Do I have something in my teeth? I'd check a mirror but... You know..." (▶️) references how vampires are thought to not have a reflection.
  • These skins have a different hairstyle in their splash art than they do in-game.
  • While difficult to see in-game, the Day Walker skin appears on a medallion Count Corvus wears on his hip, as can be seen here.
  • The Day Walker skin also appears in the Wink spray.


  • Vivian omega small.pngVivian sigma small.pngOmega / Sigma
  • The line "Get ready to hack the planet." (▶️) is a reference to a line from the movie Hackers.


  • Vivian studentofmagic small.pngVivian novice small.pngStudent of Magic / Novice
  • The Student of Magic skin appears in artwork for the Sparkling Stallion, implying the mount may have originally been planned to release earlier.
  • While not visible in-game, Bazaar can be seen in the texture for these skins' books.[3][4]
  • The line "You know what I like more than material things? Knowledge. Actually, I'm a lot more proud of these new magic books I had to get installed to hold all the spells I've learned." (▶️) is a reference to the Here in My Garage meme.
